Service Promises One-Stop Voicemail Pickup

The service aggregates multiple incoming phone lines into one number that customers can access through a Web interface.

GrandCentral Communications Inc. believes it has the answer for anyone who doesn't want to keep track of cellular, home and office phone numbers, as well as check voicemail messages on multiple phones.

The Freemont, Calif., company has designed a service that aggregates multiple incoming phone lines into one number. Through a Web interface, users link numbers and voicemails, as well as customize outgoing voicemail messages to a variety of callers.

The service announced this week at DEMOfall 2006 in San Diego aims to assign one phone number per person. The basics are free, or $14.99 monthly for premium service.

Callers are categorized by co-worker, family, friends, or other. Among the features, users can answer incoming calls from any phone, screen calls and pickup the phone in mid-message, ringbacks from MP3s, individual custom greetings, record phone calls, store messages, and more.

E-mail notifications are sent when a message becomes available, too. The incoming message appears in the GrandCentral Web application created for users to organize files. Users can add notes to incoming voicemail message and save them to search on later.
